Other test painted

I tried also this Neapolitan Guardsman, the back pack, cartridge pouch and sabre are a part piece, here the paint test as Granatiere and Velite della Guardia.

Despite the sculpture (which was one of the first) has some small problems of proportions, the painted ones are very impressive.

The first test shots!!!!

Yes, the dream is close to come true !!!!  I had the first test shot in resin, and it is Fantastic!!!! Details and precision are the same as the original, so let's start with production. In the end of the month i have a meeting for the metal test casting too.

My first resin casts

  After years of thoughts, finally i made my first molds and casts of toy soldiers, the technique works very fine and the detail is excellent, i first casted an French officer horse  , after i started the first Austrian Jagers conversions which went quite fine although while making i could  think of small adjustments to improve the work.      

I'm now busy with a conversion of Austrian Hussars which i found a big missing item in the production, 

    

This is my first own casted piece painted.... good result i think... isn't it?
